Homer Bush's 1999 Topps Traded card - standing on the precipice of immortality (and second base, to boot)

Homer Bush, you see, has a record. Oh sure, you say, there are records and then there are records. You can have your 760-odd home runs, your 511 wins, your 5000 strikeouts. Pshaw. This is a record.
With five in 1999, Homer Bush set the all-time single-season major league record…

You just can’t top that.
Homer's stats are so awesome they defy all efforts to scan them clearly
